Reviewing 2008: what’s your £1, €1, $1 worth now?

At this time of year, I always spend a while reviewing the year that has passed.  Last year, I lingered over discussions that reviewed retail banking, capital markets and payments. To be honest, I don’t need to do that this year as the year has been over-shadowed by one thing: SURVIVAL Can the bank make it…

You’re invited to PayPal’s 10th Birthday Party

With 2009 starting on a bit of a downbeat note, after the crisis of 2008, the Financial Services Club thought: what should we do to cheer everyone up? You guessed it, we decided to throw a party. But what's the point of starting the New Year with a party if you're not celebrating anything, so…

Mobile social money, the final frontier?

In the final part of discussions of social networks, media, banking and money, I thought I would turn attention to the use of mobile devices as access media to these networks.
